SharePoint 2013 March CU 2016 installation issues - New Office Add ins not working

    Question

  • Hi,

    We have installed the March CU (15.0.4805.1000) in our SP envs (non prod) and we observed that our Office Add-ins (App for office) is not working fine. When we upload new manifest xml, it doesnt work and ULS Log shows message "Invalid Agave manifest 'AgaveCatalog/sample.xml': Type 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/officeappbasictypes/1.0:VersionOverrides' is not declared"

    But the same manifest xml when uploaded to production environment it works fine as prod env is not installed with March CU. 

    Below are the contents of the manifest xml:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <OfficeApp xmlns=
      "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/appforoffice/1.1"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

  • Hi Santosh Bantu,

    The problem is the file “C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\XML\wefextensionmanifestschema1_1.xsd” which is supposed to validate the uploaded manifest xml has been updated on the March 2016 CU.

    For this issue, please try copying the working wefextensionmanifestschema1_1.xsd file to the server that is not working, then check if the issue is resolved..

    Best Regards,

  • Can you suggest if we can continue with working file (which is before March cu) or we need to update our manifest xml  to work with new file (after March cu) ?
